Almost everybody in Old Orchard Public School has had the dubious honor of receiving a nickname from best friends Jeff and Wiley. They've dubbed their own underachieving class "The Dim Bulbs"; their pop-eyed principal is better known as "Deer in Headlights"; and their enormous football-coach-turned-teacher is now "Mr. Huge".
